Rosie Cleave, of the NSPCC, won the services to charity award presented by Charles Smith, of Shepley Spring
Congratulations to Rosie Cleave for winning the Services to Charity award at last nights Pride of Huddersfield Awards 2016 held at the John Smiths Stadium.
Rosie, the wife of the late club stalwart Ian, and mother of A Team captain Duncan, has committed herself to helping the NSPCC for approaching 60 years and in that time has raised more than £100,000 for the charity herself and, taking her work as part of group fundraisers, it will be around £500,000.
Her list of fundraising activities is endless and she’s so dedicated to the cause she has even been known to collect wood and chop it up as kindling which she has then sold to homes and businesses.
Now 64, last year she trekked 26 miles through the Peruvian mountains to raise £9,000.
Unfotunately Huddersfield Dragons Mens First Team were pipped to the Sports Team of the Year award by Lower Hopton WMC Bowling Club.
